Heritage with Hoopla: Ancestors in the County Courthouse

Join us as we wander through Hoopla's "Discovering Your Roots: An Introduction to Genealogy" using The Great Courses series. Discover how to work your way through the courthouse records of the county where your ancestors resided. Using the two most common types of courts (circuit and chancery), you'll examine how to read courthouse materials, including probate packets, vital records, tax rolls, and even colonial-era records such as indentures and apprenticeships.

No registration is required! Attendees will be seated on a first-come, first-served basis. Seating is limited to 18. Please arrive early as the program will start right on time.
